Information Technology Service Desk

Get help, resolve problems, report bugs, and get information about the IT systems and SBCTC-supported applications all in one central place.

How the Service Desk Works for You

Route all calls, faxes, and emails through the Service Desk to avoid risk of delayed response.

  • Reported issues are logged in a call-tracking system and routed to the right consultant or analyst. If a consultant or analyst cannot return your call promptly, the Service Desk coordinator will notify you of the delay.
  • The Service Desk coordinator monitors requests throughout the day. For each call, fax or email message received, the coordinator creates a Support Request and assigns it to the appropriate consultant or analyst.
  • The consultant or analyst will contact you and give you a Support Request number. Use this number when making additional calls related to the same issue, or when faxing or emailing any other information regarding the issue.

Service Desk or Campus IT?

Your campus IT department is often your first point of contact for system problems. Before contacting SBCTC-ITD Service Desk, follow the policies and procedures to get help at your campus.

Campus procedures vary, but your college IT staff can often resolve log-in or connectivity problems and may have assigned application (FAID, FMS, PPMS, SMS) coordinators who can help with local processing issues.

Contact the SBCTC-ITD Service Desk

Have the following information ready:

  • College name and campus
  • Your name, telephone number and email address
  • Application or product (for example, FAID, FMS, PPMS, SMS, UDALink Reporter)
  • Version of application or product
  • An ID number for any of the following that apply: screen, report, job, job group, session, or LDEV number
  • Identification number (for example, Student ID and Employee ID)
  • Error message and number (screen prints can be faxed or emailed to the service desk)
  • A precise explanation of the problem
  • A description of the steps required to reproduce the problem

If you reach voicemail, leave a detailed message, including:

  • College name and campus
  • Your name, telephone number and email address
  • Detailed description of your question or problem
